Remember when you could rent video games from a location within a short drive from your home? Well those days are back again, except if you return the game 2 hours later than the deadline, this company doesn’t shoot you in the dick.
Starting today, RedBox kiosks will start carrying video games. The selection is currently somewhat limited, and you’ll definitely have a better chance of scoring a AAA title on PS3 than Xbox, but hey it’s only $2 per night plus tax. So for those games whose single player you can complete faster than a Harry Potter novel ::cough:: Homefront ::cough:: this may be a more economical way to cover the waterfront of current games.
Better still, you can search for games on the RedBox website and “reserve” them for pickup later. This saves the effort of driving all over town to find a much coveted copy of Wipeout for Wii. What remains to be seen is how these discs will stand up to the wear and tear of being tossed about with cheeto fingers in homes across america.
